Rating: 8 A great follow-up to their storming debut-heavier, faster and nastier.

  I wouldn't call it great. Although the production is way better than the debut and even than "Under the Sign...", the vocals are kinda of "low", every song uses the same guitar riff played in the same speedy and all the songs lyrics looks like leftovers of the debut. While the debut album was more diversified and "Under the Sign..." more mature, this one was just used to fill empty spaces for a desired follow-up.

In other words, even Quorthon strongly disliked this album.

  Since I was listening 1th album some month ago, i did not share it and comment(I did it back then), but to be honest this is nothing special, boring , Venom, Celtic Frost rip off, if bands would play like this , I mean more and more bands ehhh, this is Bathory but to me real Bathory begins whit epic albums
